Dear Fellow New Yorker,
Summer means a fresh new season of New York produce. Governor Cuomo’s FreshConnect program is increasing access to affordable, fresh New York-grown produce for all New Yorkers, while also supporting our local farmers. The Governor has expanded the FreshConnect program to support 34 projects at over 50 locations statewide. Many of these farm-to-table projects in underserved communities are now open.
FreshConnect projects include markets, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, and food distribution systems – allowing more New Yorkers to enjoy fresh, New York-grown fruit and vegetables available this summer season, like asparagus, strawberries, peas, broccoli, and more.
In addition to the FreshConnect projects, New Yorkers can view a full list of farmers’ markets in New York State by clicking here.
The FreshConnect program is helping to deliver produce straight from our farms to the kitchen tables of underserved families, while creating local jobs and serving all New Yorkers.
The new New York is one that works for you.
The Office of the Governor
